Today’s post marks the 200th entry for CollectingCandy.com, so I thought it was appropriate to share something a bit expansive. With that thought, today I’ll be presenting a very cool promotional brochure Topps provided to buyers picturing their 1974 product lineup. It’s a great piece with several photos of things I’ve not seen anywhere else.
The front and back covers of the fold out brochure feature what you might expect, with an overview, and a checklist:
And finally, here’s the best part – the collection of photos. It’s what makes this brochure pure gold to me:
A lot of those images are pretty small, so I’m going to provide closeups today as well. Many of the products on this collected image will be the topic of future posts here on the site, so I won’t spend too much time discussing them today. Consider this all a bit of an extended teaser for goodies yet to come.
Okay, let’s get to some of the highlights:
Pretty neat to see all of those classic 70′s products lined-up, don’t you think?
I hope you enjoyed this look at a great piece of candy ephemera and historical reference. I also hope you are enticed by the teaser of what will likely be several different posts based upon the products featured in this brochure. It’s going to be fun!
And that’s everything for today. See you next time!
